SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encoded information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
In case you have a shared hosting account with us and you want to handle your content remotely through SSH, you may get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't offer this feature by default, you can easily add it with a couple of clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can even pick what password you would like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles where you may find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. Additionally, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and handle them through SSH. If the package which you have chosen includes this feature by default, you just have to enable the SSH access feature using the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you may quickly include it through the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and video lessons about the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a whole list of the commands that you can carry out along with various examples to provide you with a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is active, you'll also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files securely via any FTP app that supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You'll be able to use SSH to control your content regardless which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all of our packages provide this feature as standard. You won't have to include or enable anything by hand - the instant your hosting server is prepared and you receive the Welcome email with the login information, you may connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be separated from the other accounts within the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You may set up any app that you need and that will run on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
